Our computer system is now operational! C'mon down and try it out -- you'll just need your library card number, last name, and an account in Good Standing.
Our annual Summer Reading program has officially begun!
The theme this year for pre-K through 6th grade is "Fizz, Boom, Read!" and the theme for 6th grade through 12th grade is "Spark a Reaction." Sign-ups are ongoing -- participants can pick up a packet of activities and a schedule of science-themed programs, and claim their free book!
If all Summer Reading participants can read a combined 1000 hours (verified by parent/guardian), Miss Amy has vowed to dye her hair the winning color as selected by poll (GREEN!).
This week the program kicks off with magician Louis Foxx on Wednesday, June 25th at 5:30pm in the Delany Room!
